134539The better battery (for large scale storage)
- Mar 9, 2014http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-03-06/mit-s-liquid-metal-stores-solar-power-until-after-sundown.htmlDevelopment and commercial deployment of a battery system tostore solar and wind energy for low generation periods is movingahead rapidly. A commercially viable storage system to be availablein 2015? That is the envisioned time frame for this system thatwould use commonly available liquefied metals to store electricitythat would be competitive with conventional generation.It is entirely financed by private equity so the system mayactually exist and may actually be applicable to life as weknow it, rather than be a departmental fantasy.The chemical composition is a trade secret as it should be.A cost point of 500 dollars is needed according to the article.This will be a first commercial attempt at a viable storage system,and probably not the last.
